without bart? these people were stuck on the same stre for . this is kpix 5 news. think your commute was bad without bart? these people were stuck on the same street for hours, but tonight, there is one man who claims he can bring the strike to an end. good evening, i'm allen martin. >> i'm elizabeth cook. here's the very latest. the bart strike still on. there will be no trains tomorrow. there will be no formal negotiations today, and so far, no talks are scheduled for tomorrow. joe vasquez says traffic was so bad today, some drivers actually took coffee breaks. joe. >> liz, the civic center bart station has a little bit of traffic as the muni trains are still running, but compared to most days it's a ghost town undertown. as for the streets of san francisco, that's a whole
11:02 pm
different story. gridlock. how bad is the traffic caused by the bart strike. >> bad. >> so bad it took about an hour and a half toe drive a one mile stretch. >> pretty ridiculous. >> that's time enough for children to take a substantial nap, for a lady to calmly walk around to the trunk and pull out some scene of that accident and for a man to go on a coffee run while his wife wait in traffic. >> i betted that i could come up here, all the way up here to starbucks, pay for iting and everything and come back before she makes it up here. >> that's how many blocks ago. >> three blocks back. >> it's that bad. goodness. >> but not everyone is taking it all that well. >> what do you think about this strike? they're not even at the table negotiating. >> they're not? and we're sitting here in traffic? kind of frustrating. >> i'd be happy to participate in the effort. >> and you haven't been asked yet, though. >> oh, no, not at all. >> former mayor willie brown helped mediate the negotiations during the 1997 bart strike when
11:03 pm
he was mayor and says he'd do it again if asked, although to this day not everyone agrees he helped reach the best resolution. >> one of the comments was, well, yeah, the mayor helped settle that one, but at a price, and there we go, bart employees were paid a lot of money. >> there's always a dispute between management and labor, and usually it evolves around money. the public out there thinks i'm running bart, and the guy driving that train makes more than me. there has to be some clear understanding of what the issues are surrounding money. >> that last strike back in 97 lasted six days. this one, who knows because both sides are not even sitting down at the table talking. reporting live in san francisco, joe vasquez, kpix 5. >> the two sides are still pretty far apart. bart is offering an 8% pay hike. the yundown want 13 and a half
11:04 pm
percent raise over the next three years. they're willing to kick in half a percent toward their retirement. the bay bridge, freeways, buses, ferries all packed today, but what kpix 5 traffic reporter elizabeth wanger found out today could help you tomorrow. >> my best advice, find a friend, grab a stranger, just find someone to share a ride. the worst commutes, like we expected, were primarily in the east bay and the approaches to the bay bridge, but here's what surprised us, the car pool lanes were far less crowd saving drivers who used them a lot of time. another piece of advice, go the long way around. if you're in the east bay, take the richmond bridge to the golden gate bridge. they were a breeze today, even lighter than normal. ferries are another great option though the lines were long. as the bay ferry tripled its number of riders out of the jack london ferry tunnel. i'm elizabeth wanger with your
11:05 pm
traufk. >> some commuters were in line by 3:00 this morning. tomorrow, twice as many buses will be running out of five stations. fremont, wall mutt creek, dublin pleasanton and west oakland. bay area group estimates the first day of the bart strike cost about $73 million in worker productivity alone. that number will increase each day the strike goes on. the last bart strike in 97 lasted six days. city employees in oakland stage add one-day walk out. they also want more money and argued that they made plenty of concessions during the recession. now, the oakland strike shut down non-essential city services today including parking enforcement. now, i reported that last night, but it turns out some people got parking tickets today anyway. you can imagine we got some phone calls and e-mails asking what's up. linda yee found out what happened. >> it was supposed to be free
11:06 pm
parking in oakland. city leaders couldn't make it clearer in press releases they sent out, and last night elizabeth cook announced it on our 11:00 news. >> there will be no parking enforcement in oakland. >> except paul may sown got a ticket anyway, a hefty $58 fine for not feeding the meter. it turns out at least one parking enforcer crossed the picket lines and went to work. >> people have the right to strike or they had the right to report to work, and he came and used the parking enforcement person so he came and wrote tickets as was his job. >> it's not known exactly how many tickets he wrote, but he put in a full shift. >> i thought there's probably a lot of other people who may be having the same problem, and that's not right. >> so we asked the city if they'll make it right for unsuspecting ticket victims. >> we did tell the public that we did not anticipate that there will be parking enforcement so we will honor that. >> if you're one of the unlucky once who got a parking ticket today, you can appeal it.
11:07 pm
follow the instruction on the back. you can either do it in person or online, and you're off the hook. in oakland, linda yee kpix 5. >> oakland city leaders will be on the job tomorrow including parking enforcement officers. the grass fire burned 500 acres, destroyed at least one shed near pittsburgh. one point made a good run toward homes before firefighters managed to contain it about 7:00 tonight. it was about a hundred degrees out there today. paul says it is going to be even hotter tomorrow. even hotter tomorrow after triple dimths today throughout much of the inland areas. lafayette, morgan hill, 101 for each of your communities today. you hit 100. for that reason, we have the excessive heat warning continuing through tomorrow, through wednesday for just about everywhere away from the water. highs will be above 100 degrees again. it's getting to be a common theme in places like livermore. today your fourth-consecutive day above 100 degrees five days in this heat wave and not going
11:08 pm
away because the huge dome of high pressure which gave us the heat will keep the heat around. this high is acting like an oven. it's not moving so our forecast simply is not going to be changing. we will talk about when that high will finally move out, when temperatures will finally fall coming up in a few short minutes. tonight we know more about what happened on the fire lines in arizona where 19 firemen died. investigators say a dramatic shift in the winds trapped them. these guys were some of the best, elite firefighters known as hot shots, most of them in their twentys and thirties. three of them were from southern california. the firefighters knew they were in trouble, and sharon chen shows us the special emergency shelters they used to try to protect themselves. sharon. >> well, to protect themselves, liz, firefighters can use emergency shelters just like this one. unfortunately it doesn't work in every situation. >> ryan of cal fire shows us the $400 emergency fire shelter all packed up in part o every wild
11:09 pm
land firefighter's emergency kit. so let's say the flames wiped away our pre-planned escape or safety zone. you want to pick a minimum 4 by 8-foot area in large field or other natural break. >> you're going to want to try to stay out of direct flame impingement. these fire shelters are designed to deflect 95% of the radiant heat from the exterior. >> you put your feet in first then put your hands in the hand strap and you anchor your feet and your hands to the ground to keep the shelter in place and hopefully to tep you safe. >> when the fire is going over the top you're going to experience significant winds and this thing is going to try to blow away from you. >> fire resistant aluminum, silica and fiberglass wovn into the thick lining of this cocoon-like tent it can with stand high temperatures but cannot endure direct flames for more than several minutes. >> they start to break down after 30 seconds of about 13 to
11:10 pm
1400 degrees. about 30 seconds you'll start to get that exterior starting to break apart, and if it's -- if it's for that amount of time, you should be okay, but if it's for extended periods where it's minutes, you probably -- you probably wouldn't be able to survive. >> since 2009, all firefighters in wild labd situations have been required to have these emergency shelters with them. they are retrain and had retested every yore. they have a 30-second test at which they are supposed to show just how to use these. >> training is important. all right, sharon, thank you. well, that tent sharon showed us is the latest version. they are more fire resistant and bigger than similar tents from just a couple of years ago. sick of bad drivers? how more and more people are getting revenge against people who do things like this. stephen king goes under the dome. what pulled him to dark side and what still scares him. paula deen is using prop 8

feed the water. ve television. yeah. it is pretty toesty out there. the difference between this heat wave and most of our heat waves lasts one or two days. this one has been five already, and it's gooing to be three more. we are not going to see significant cooling until friday. today's highs, cloverdale, you hit a buck 5. dublin 1404, pleasanton 103, walnut cliek 102, gil roy 101 and pittsburgh 100 degrees today. you go outside and try to make the best of it. lots of kids did. i have to say every water park in the bay area, probably the entire state packed with kids today. one, school is out, two, it's about 120 degrees above average temperature wise. kids having fun in the heat today. look at our microclimates around here. you know we have them. livermore 103, 62 miles away and 45 degrees away, it was only 58 for a high today in point reyes. overnight tonight it's not going to cool down that much. oakland 60, fremont 60, san jose
